Lessons In Leather: Fresh Ways to Wear Leather This Year
Be it Marlon Brando in a Schott One Perfecto jacket in The Wild One, or Indiana Jones’ brown cult favorite number, leather has been imbibed in the American consciousness as the ultimate mystery-man staple. Leather jackets, coats, briefcases and even leather shirts all made the rounds in FW19. Even if you weren’t ready to take the plunge then, here are five simple, updated ways to incorporate leather in your wardrobe in 2020.
Structure and construction makes leather jackets so hard to get right—nobody likes frumpy shoulders or a stiff sleeve that leaves no room for movement. But ultimately, you’re bound to find one that fits like a glove, whether it’s a military-inspired jacket or a more traditional piece.
While the idea of a men’s bracelet may conjure up mental images of Californian surfer dudes and pukka shell necklaces to match; don’t fret—understated leather bracelets are sure to give your ensemble the perfect amount of edge without going overboard.
Everyday shoes with sneaker-like comfort are the rage, and the trend is expected to grow in 2020. You’ll still find classic pairs, but eye-catching styles (patent leather, anyone?) are available for those who are feeling more adventurous.
Swapping your basic wool gloves for an edgier leather pair is some of the best advice style experts have to offer. They’re an instant outfit upgrade and will keep your hands toasty when the temperatures plummet.
